That declaration, attributed to Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., used to shock Christians more than it does today. Although we may have heard this sentiment time and time again, we must keep that shocking nature of this statement at the forefront of our minds if we are to fully participate in our story as The Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
Disciples world-wide recognize that racial prejudice is bad, yet racism still exists all over our world. There is a distinct different between not being prejudice, and being intentionally anti-racist, and Disciples are working hard to bring anti-racist and pro-reconciling conversations into our life-long stories of church, and to our identity. To that end we will have a special opportunity THIS SUNDAY to be a part of these anti-racist and pro-reconciling ministries within the life of the church, and we hope you will join us:
On October 7th we as OPCC, will worship at another Disciples congregation here in the area, Fellowship Christian Church (DOC) in Kansas City, KS. As a historically African-American congregation we give thanks that we can worship together on this day to honor both Reconciliation Ministries as well as World Communion Sunday.
- OPCC will still hold Communion and Meditation at 9:00 a.m. on October 7th in the OPCC Prayer Chapel
- You can meet as at OPCC at 9:30 am to caravan to Fellowship Christian Church, or you can make your way directly from home to worship - Fellowship Christian begins worship at 10:30 a.m.
